  1. I won’t be going to any of these debates because there isn’t anyone really worth voting for.

    We have the big government Republicans who repress women, voters, and gays running against Democrats who are too afraid to be truly liberal as well as faux intelligent LIbertarians who spout rigidly ideological nonsense.

    The Texas political system is not so much about red or blue or purple, but more about social ignorance, pandering crony capitalism, and social repression by evangelical right wing extremists.

    Republicans are not conservatives anymore and Democrats are not progressive anymore. So why bother voting?

  2. Jim and Dano are examples of exactly the type of voter ignorance Texans should be ashamed of. Along with all the other white hate states in the south, the world looks at Texas (and the rest of the South) as the neoConfederacy – or the American Taliban. But then again, who cares what anyone thinks. Hate is a terrible thing to waste.

    A rich Republican has three cows. The poor white angry Republican has none, but keeps waiting for the promises to come to fruition that the right wing politicians say will get him a cow. He never gets a cow, but he keeps going to church and praying he will get a cow. He dies filled with hate for Obama, blames him for everything, and still without a cow.

    The Democrat politician has two cows. He says to his gullible voters he will get a cow if they vote for him. A cow instead goes to Wall Street as part of the bank bailout agreement.

    The Libertarian hates all government, but can’t understand why big corporations don’t think and act like small businesses. He retreats to his fantasy economic world, frustrated and misunderstood, thinking he is smarter than everyone else.

  3. Of course, Jim, that’s why you can’t stop yourself from responding to these accurate comments.

    You can pretend you are holier than thou, but by ignoring the truth you are part of the problem in this failing nation.
